Finished drawings, and alternative preliminary design, designs and record drawing for the ceiling for the 1st drawing room (now the yellow drawing room), 1765-1768 (6)

The 1st drawing room is on the south front of the house, between the saloon and the 2nd drawing room, and the Adam ceiling survives. It was hung with yellow silk in 1776 in preparation for the arrival of Chippendale's furniture upholstered in the same colour.

According to Harris, the executed ceiling, taken from Adam volume 11/161, is based on an antique vaulted ceiling engraved by Pietro Santi Bartoli.
